Up 2.5 inches and lovin it...

Got the 5100's all around and set at 2.5 inches, w/o an aal in the rear. The ride is soo much better than the stock Toxico shocks which I believe were on there for 140,000+ miles. Anyhow, I wanted to go with 285's tires on a 16x8 type B black steelie from wheelers but they were out of stock for months. So I picked up these Eagle alloy series 186, 15x8 wheels second hand for $45 a rim instead. I really wanted black wheels to complete the look, but I'm actually pretty satisfied with the way it turned out. Plus this wheel is such a classic look imo. I ended up going with 32x11.5 Hankook M/T's because 33x12.5 probably would have rubbed like crazy, and wouldn't have had much articulation when i took her offroad. Here's a few before and afters, enjoy.

I just used some Krylon Flat Black on them. Actually thinking about using the Duplicolor Flat Black Wheel paint on the rims, i gotta stick to the theme.

thanks for the comments guys

you know I've been looking at it for the past few days and it looks pretty level to me, might be the slightest rake front to back but it's very little.
